CHAOS ERUPTS As #Ferguson Protesters Shut Down Sen. Wyden Town Hall – Threaten to Beat Security Guard (VIDEO)

vlcsnap-2015-01-04-01h43m40s224Senator Ron Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) attempted to hold a town hall in Portland, OR, on Saturday, January 3rd. Ferguson “I Can’t Breathe” protesters, together with the $15 Now! communists, busted through the event, even threatening to punch safety officers who were trying to shut the doors, and took over the whole town hall.

According to the Oregonian, Wyden and his staffers fled the town hall, along with many of the attendees.

The *peaceful* Ferguson protesters threaten to punch a public safety officer at a Senator Ron Wyden town hall, as the protesters started to flood the room. They find another door that someone opens for them, and complete chaos erupts inside, as the protesters take over the town hall and proclaim “It’s our town hall now!”

“”The gangs are this man right here!” shouted one of the protesters, as she pointed to Senator Ron Wyden at a Portland town hall.

“We’re just gunna take over this town hall right now” they say, after Wyden offers to let them speak early at the event. They start to shout their normal stuff, people in the crowd start to heckle the protesters, and one of them shouts back, “respect our cause!” They somehow link the Ferguson/Michael Brown/Eric Garner/Tamir Rice/I Can’t Breath movement to the $15 Now! minimum wage movement.

Other folks were there to protest the Trans Pacific Partnership, but those folks were quickly attacked as the Ferguson protesters say “You’re being rude and interrupting”. “You’re showing hatred” they say to another person who attempted to quell the madness. “We’re taking over the town hall now. It’s our town hall. It belongs to the black people.” “

$15 Now Protests Subway, Patrons and Employees React By…

$15 Now, the movement to raise minimum wage to $15 an hour, is organizing protests in fast food places across the country. Portland is no exception. Last May, they flooded a downtown McDonald’s and interrupted everyone’s lunch, which almost resulted in a fight.

Now they have teamed with up Don’t Shoot Portland, the Michael Brown/Eric Garner/Tamir Rice/Ferguson protesters, and they directed their rage toward a Subway located at Portland State University.

They start off chanting “Hands up, don’t spend!”, then one of their ring leaders launches into a rant. But the best part is the reaction of the customers and employees. Or rather, the lack there of any reaction. It’s downright comedic how everyone in the restaurant pretty much ignores the shouting and chanting that’s taking place right next to them.

After the rant, they start chanting again. “Why do we want 15, I can’t breathe” and “What do we want? FIFTEEN! Black lives matter!”.

One of the most prominent $15 Now proponents is Seattle city councilwoman Kshama Sawant, who has referred to capitalists as “criminals of our society.”

VIDEO: #Ferguson Protesters Berate & Abuse Janitor at Police Union Headquarters

Screen Shot 2014-12-25 at 10.49.37 PMProtesters in Portland, OR demonstrated out front of the police union building on Christmas eve, and when this man drove up, they immediately began to assume that he is a racist cop, and they launch into the “I Can’t Breathe” song.

The man claimed he was the janitor, but that didn’t stop the protesters from shoving cameras in his face and accusing the man of being drunk, even asking if he could do a sobriety test.

#Ferguson Protesters Disrupt Mall Of America Shoppers

From Kare 11 in Minneapolis:

“About 10 minutes into the protest, a warning that the demonstration “is not authorized and is in clear violation of Mall of America policy” was announced over the loudspeaker and displayed on a large screen in the rotunda. The warning asked participants to disperse and stated that those who continued to demonstrate could be arrested.

Mall officials shut down all of the escalators in the rotunda, and some stores in the area closed their gates. The Mall of America enhanced security, and police in riot gear were present.”

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 3.12.49 AMThe mall, which is private property, relayed to police that they wanted the protesters gone. They attempted to announce this to the protesters, but the crowd began booing so loud that the message could not be heard.

Stores lowered the gates, and hundreds, if not thousands, of holiday shoppers found a reason to hate the protesters.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 3.28.06 AMAbout 20 people were arrested, and most of the crowd left, shortly after staging a “die in”, which is becoming common place at these protests.

You Won’t Believe What These Anti Gun Folks Are Openly Saying…

VIa 2nd Amendment Action Center:

“Gabby Giffords came to Oregon on October 21st, 2014. The event was private, but media was allowed in. YouTuber Daylight Disinfectant made his way in and filmed the entire thing…Obama appointed D.A. Amanda Marshall makes fun of “2nd Amendment enthusiasts”, then they start to talk about removing the privacy of folks who have been through the current background check system and turning the records over to the federal government. Multnomah County Commissioner Judy Shiprack then talks about having the state legislature address the “administrative rule” that the Oregon State Police have in effect where they destroy most background check records after 5 days. Failing that, State Representative Barbara Smith-Warner suggests that they administrative rule simply be changed. Apparently it’s a problem to these people that the records are not made public or made available to the federal government.”

In a second video:

“At 2:28, Amanda Marshall talks about getting county Sheriffs to enforce federal laws and “dispossess” people of guns. At 3:03, Robert Yuille says “certainly we need registration”, presumably of firearms.”

 

And in a 3rd video:

“We see Vanessa Timmons, head of the Oregon Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, say “It’s not that all guns are dangerous, but when guns are dangerous, women die… when women die in Oregon, they die at the hands of guns”. Ms. Timmons makes no mention of the perpetrators who use the guns, she only blames the firearm. Dr. Sylvia Emory, President of the Oregon Medical Association, appears to say “F*** Florida” in reference to a proposed bill that would have prevented doctors from violating their patients privacy.”

On purpose or not, they have actually laid out their current and future plans for gun prohibition:

a) Indoctrinate children starting at age 3

b) Get the OSP’s 5 day rule reversed, either by changing the rule internally or with legislative action, so that background check records are made public and available to the feds for indefinite periods of time. Ironically, such things would probably result in fewer people going through the background check process, because folks don’t want that information becoming public record.

c) Registration is a future step

d) Claim that it’s a health issue and call it “sensible gun safety”

e) Use public officials to insult and mock the opposition

f) It’s not a privacy issue, it’s a community issue

g) Promote the breaking of their own laws and policies that they want to implement

h) Don’t talk about other things that kill children

I) Deny saying what you clearly said on video”

Greenies Rally Against Global Warming In Near Freezing Temperatures (Video!)

Screen Shot 2014-12-21 at 10.55.24 AMFree trade is terrorism” reads one sign, as greenies demanding that politicians stop “climate change” and the Trans Pacific Partnership bundle up in their coats and hats as winter weather hits Portland, with highs in the 40’s and lows in the 20’s, 10-15 degrees lower than normal. The obligatory megaphone is effect, as over-caffeinated teenagers shout chants through it, and were even treated to a performance by the Raging Grannies.

The protestors march into Congresscum Earl Blumanauer’s office while chanting through the halls. They later march to Senator Ron Wyden’s office, where they are stopped short by DHS. Other signs read “Living The American -Dream- Nightmare” and “Trade Isn’t Free”, along with a pile of union provided astroturf signs. After the protest, one of Blumanure’s staffers runs into me on the sidewalk, and I razz him about how the “global warming” is really getting us.”

“YOU GOT A DEATHWISH?!?!” Video Emerges From Oakland #Ferguson Beating

He Tried to Put Out a Dumpster Fire – So They Beat Him
beating victim ferguson

Just yesterday we reported on a man who was savagely beaten for attempting to put out a fire started by Michael Brown protesters.

Video has now emerged of the incident.

In the video, you can see the gentleman attempting to put the fire out, saying “This is not how we do this”, while you can others unintelligibly shouting things at him and calling him “white boy”. The protesters circle back around, apparently egged on by an over-caffeinated girl on her bike, saying “You will get your A$$ beat!” and stating her support for using violence, and others begin to assault the victim. Another kid shouts out “We don’t need white saviors.”


After the attack, the man shows other people his mouth, as 2 teeth were knocked out, and he is seen digging through the dumpster looking for his glasses.

Democratic Rep. ‘Help Impoverished Families, Raise Their Taxes’

Democrats Call For Passage Of Fair Employment Opportunity Act

Earlier this week the ironically named SWEET Act was introduced by Democratic Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro. If successful, the act would levy a one cent tax for every teaspoon of sugar, high fructose corn syrup or other sweetener added to foods.

DeLauro argues that sugar in foods are “pervasive” and “inescapable” especially for low income families.

“It is the sugary foods and drinks that are the easiest for families living on the edge of poverty to afford,” said DeLauro.

While the Connecticut Congresswoman seems totally content with this line of reasoning, she fails to realize that adding an enormous tax to sugary foods and drinks will not make healthy food cheaper.

In fact, the unintended consequences of such a bill would hurt the impoverished people it purports to protect. Families at or below the poverty line could find themselves paying anywhere from 25 to 50 percent more for a bottle of cola, diverting money they could have used for healthier foods.

If it is true that sugar in low quality food is indeed “inescapable” as DeLauro suggests, then taxing affordable sugary foods will only hurt people living on the edge. Should the bill pass, it will make more than a spoonful of sugar to make the SWEET ACT go down for low income families.

Raw Courage: Kansas 9 Year Old Defeats Nanny State – ‘Free Little Library’ to Reopen

After a lengthy battle with the Leawood City Council, 9 year old Kansas resident Spencer Collins will be able to put his ‘little free library’ back up in his front yard.

Earlier this May, Collins set up a micro-library in his front lawn as a Mother’s Day gift to his mother, and as a gift to his community. A sign on the structure encouraged passers by to “take a book, return a book.”

Everything was going fine until the city of Leawood claimed they had ‘received complaints’ about Collins’ library and ordered him to take it down, sparking a national controversy. Since then, Collins has amassed almost 32,000 supporters on Facebook and the support of bestselling children’s authors.

Speaking from on top on top of an old milk crate, Collins made his message clear, Leawood residents should be allowed to share books and build community on their property.

Thankfully, the City Council caved to media and community pressure and “unanimously approved a temporary moratorium – that exempts the little lending libraries from a city ordinance that prohibits structures in front yards.”

While the temporary moratorium expires in October, there is little doubt that young Spencer Collins will help ensure homeowner’s rights to set up lending libraries in their front yards permanently.

There are an estimated 15,000 ‘little free libraries’ in areas across the country, those interested can find the closest one to them by using this map.

Another Trayvon! Just Kidding, This Crime Doesn’t Fit The Narrative Frame

"The biggest crime in the U.S. criminal justice system is that it is a race-based institution where African-Americans are directly targeted and punished in a much more aggressive way than white people." -Bill Quigley “The biggest crime in the U.S. criminal justice system is that it is a race-based institution where African-Americans are directly targeted and punished in a much more aggressive way than white people.” –Bill Quigley

Trayvon Martin was an innocent, urban youth of promise who planned to go to college, escape the hood, write poetry in the same style as Langston Hughes, make documentary films, and probably even donate to Oxfam occasionally. He certainly wasn’t representative of the obvious-to-everyone but still a mystery to the mainstream media that young black men commit an unbelievably disproportionate amount of crime in the country.

For the thoughtcrime of thinking that probable-cat burglar Trayvon might be a cat burglar, George Zimmerman was almost convicted of murder. The entire media infrastructure and elites came out to villainize Martin. No doubt many pro-Trayvon movies are in production.

And so when, in Madison, Wisconsin, a young couple was awoken to four burglars ransacking their home, threatening to kill them, and then viciously raping the wife, you would think that, in context, it would get noticed by the mainstream media.

Oh did I mention the wife was six months pregnant and pleading for her baby’s life?

In supposedly racist America, you can’t even drive around town without being pulled over for “Driving while Black” and yet, stories like this seem to be missed by the racist white overlords running our media industry.

Surely they haven’t missed other stories like this, like those of the Wichita horror or the Channon Christian and Andrew Newsom murders. David Berkowitz killed six people and from that there have been four movies and three songs. How many times do we even hear about these kind of crimes?

Google News reports just 15 mentions of this crime in the media. There are 9,450 current news stories about Travyon Martin. This is despite the fact that Travyon Martin was shot while beating George Zimmerman nearly two years prior to this crime happening.

The most charitable interpretation of the absence of liberal outrage here, even from supposedly pro-woman groups, is that it’s just manufactured outrage in order to achieve a political end. Trayvon was a convenient media framing and so they jump at the opportunity to trot out the tired cliche of racist whites driving trucks gunning down young black men. But a slightly less charitable interpretation is that they enjoy and encourage this kind of behavior, that they feel as though these are morally justified rapes and attempted murders because the victims are from the undesirable class.

Black entertainers rap about killing whites. Leaders proclaim to kill whites. Even white liberals talk about and strategize how to kill white babies.

But white liberals repeat ad nauseum that the criminal justice system is unfixably racist. Bill Quigley, a Louisiana law professor, says, writ large, that “The criminal justice system, from start to finish, is seriously racist.” Yale Professor Vesla Weaver says we live in a “racial democracy” where only whites get to vote because they’re the ones who aren’t felons. This is the quality of intellectual honesty where they avoid any chance that the individuals convicted of crimes might actually be guilty.

Yet, it’s “racist” to talk about such things, to even acknowledge that this is the underlying mindset of a shockingly surprising amount of the left: whatever is bad for whites is good for the left. Whatever hurts white people as a group helps the organized left.

If the progressive left will justify coercive government policies to benefit one group at the expense of another, why not rejoice when those groups fight with one another and the undesirable group suffers as a result? When you operate a healthcare system that doesn’t care about individual wrongs, why would you care about one crime in one place from the undesirable group.

This type of crime cover-up by the media is nothing new, and will no doubt only continue to get worse. Hence why you’ve probably never heard of Mona Nelson. The media isn’t hiding their race agenda now when reporting the news. It’s no longer all the facts, it’s screened now to fit their particular agenda.
